Latest photographs unveiled by the ODA, taken last week, gave a better idea of how the public realm will wrap around 11 residential plots in east London.
The village, next to the Olympic Park, will accommodate athletes and officials during the games and will then be transformed into homes for local people.
Plots, each made up of six to eight buildings, will include hard as well as soft landscaping in the form of traditional squares. Building work started two years ago.
"The project includes new parklands, courtyards and open space," an ODA representative explained. There will be more than 10ha of new parks along with public squares, tree-lined streets and landscaped courtyards around the houses, a school and polyclinic.
Building of the homes is due to be completed later this summer and the athletes' village is expected to be ready in early 2012, the year of the games.
ODA chief executive David Higgins said the athletes' village was "firmly on track". Chair Lord Coe pointed out that the village and Olympic Park would be "central features".
Minister for sport and the Olympics Hugh Robertson added: "We are starting to see just what the athletes' village will look like in 2012." The ODA said more details on the choice of soft landscaping contractors will be made available later this summer.
